Meeting Description:

Queen's University Belfast is pleased to announce its Interdisciplinary Linguistics Conference 2014 (ILinC 2014), a postgraduate student-led venture organised by the School of English. This one-day symposium gives early career researchers the opportunity to exchange information about exploring language across all academic disciplines alongside academics in the field of linguistics and other local organizations implementing change through language. The event aims to bring together researchers from different academic divisions carrying out language studies in order to foster cross-disciplinary contact and encourage the development of new ideas in research.

Confirmed Keynote Speakers:

Dr. Dominic Watt (Senior Lecturer in Forensic Speech Science at York University)
Linda Ervine (Irish Language Development Officer, EBM, Belfast)

Call for Papers:

This year's conference theme is 'Making a difference: language and social impact'. With this theme, we seek to explore the effects of language research and its value in implementing change in policy and informing individuals in areas such as justice, health, education and community development. We welcome submissions the presentation of diverse methodologies, collaborative projects and research into previously neglected subject areas. Furthermore, the conference seeks to promote internationalisation by bringing together postgraduate students from across the globe and providing vital networking opportunities.

Submission Details:

1. Abstracts should be 300 words long (maximum) and clearly present a research question/objective, literature review, methodological approach, results and conclusions (without any subheadings).
2. Abstracts should be sent via the online facility in a .doc format, with a centralised title, in bold, and in capital letters. There is no need to include full references at the end of the abstract. Please avoid footnotes and any unusual symbols (such as phonetic transcription) that might be changed in electronic communication.
